Coalville Town FC have partnered with Derby County Community Trust to deliver a Football and Education Programme for post-16 year old students. 

The opportunity to provide this option for the young people of Coalville has come about due to the £1.1million investment into a 3G pitch at Owen Street, which is set to open in May and is supported by the Football foundation, North West Leicestershire District Council and Bardon Hill Quarry.

Year 11 school leavers will be able to be educated full-time at Coalville Town from September this year, studying a Level 3 Diploma in Sport alongside training, and playing for Coalville Town FC U19s squad.

All of the education will take place at Coalville Town in a bespoke classroom that will be on site, creating a high quality teaching environment for the students.

The education will be provided by Derby County Community Trust, which has a wealth of experience in delivering further education programmes, with over 200 students across Derbyshire in full-time education with them.

In addition to the academic course, students will train three times a week with the coaching staff as well as playing fixtures on a weekly basis representing Coalville Town.

There will be an Open Evening on February 21 from 7-9pm, which will include a presentation for students and parents, then an open training sessions.
